Hattiesburg 14's are the 2014 Dixie Boys World Series Champions. They are only the 3rd team to win both World Series titles. Hattiesburg had to defeat the host team, Bossier City, twice Weds to win the title. They pulled out a 10-3, 11 inning, 4 hour and 15 minute win in game one, that saw on field temps in the 110 degree range, a packed house and hostile crowd. The 2nd game was 4-4 going to the bottom of the 6th when we struck for 1 run on a Jo Jo Gray homerun. The game and World Series ended with us throwing the tying run out at the plate on a single to center field.

A great opening day 2014. Great crowd, great weather, and an afternoon of baseball. It was great to have everyone there and supportive. The opening ceremony was good and we were honored that Jakerious Bolton's parents were able to join us. I will have pictures updated soon.
A big shout out to Ann Jones and Clemon Terrell with the City of Hattiesburg. They have completed phase one of renovations at Cameron Field, our home. The bathrooms have been completely renovated and ac/heat installed. They are now also 100% handicap accessible. The batting cages have been expanded and new nets are on the way. They also painted the entire complex.
Parking in front of the fence is a high risk. The City and the Optimist Club do not pay to replace broken windshields or windows. We have several broken each season. Park in these spots at your own risk.
Due to Insurance regulations, coaches, players, umpires and Dixie Boys Officials are the only people allowed on the playing field or in the dugouts at any time.
